Newry footballers battle it out

Over 100 pupils across Northern Ireland participated in the 2018 Hughes Insurance Let Them Play FA Cup on 31 May. 

The Hughes Insurance Let Them Play FA Cup is a five-a-side tournament, held annually for schools across Northern Ireland catering for pupils with a learning disability.

Harry joined Alan Crooks, Irish FA Disability Football Manager, to practice his skills with the teams and remind everyone to play fair; have fun and include everyone in the game.



Head of Marketing, Strategy & Pricing at Hughes Insurance, Don Brennan commented, “We are hugely excited to partner with the Irish FA to support the disability football tournaments. 

“Hughes Insurance and The Irish FA are both committed to sharing the ‘Football for All’ message and the Irish FA team do a fantastic job at creating opportunities for pupils across Northern Ireland, of all abilities, to take part in the sport.”
